INTENDED FOR USE BY HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS ONLY

o This app provides iPhone access to the professional Isabel diagnosis checklist system available on the web at www.isabelhealthcare.com.

o It is not designed to provide a diagnosis but rather provide you with a list of likely diagnoses to consider when you have doubt. A good example would be a patient in ED with hand edema and hypotension who you are treating for sepsis and is not responding. The Isabel system might remind you to also consider anaphylaxis among other suggestions.

o The list of suggestions Isabel provides is not a differential diagnosis for your patient but rather a short list of possibilities from which you may build your differential or use as a trigger to obtain further information from your patient to assist in your differential workup.

HISTORY AND BACKGROUND

Isabel Healthcare (the app developer) was started back in 1999 after the founder’s daughter, Isabel, was badly misdiagnosed and had to spend 3 weeks in intensive care. She just survived and, today, is a healthy teenager. This experience was the inspiration behind the development of the Isabel tool that was designed to help doctors with diagnostic doubt by providing them with a list of likely diseases for a given set of signs and symptoms.
The project was started as a charity and today the founding charity remains a significant shareholder in Isabel Healthcare, the company that has developed the Isabel system.
